Getting a discount on an iPhone over Cyber Monday is great. Getting one for free is even better, and all the best Cyber Monday iPhone deals involve getting an iPhone for nothing this year.
Here are all the ways to get a free iPhone this Cyber Monday.
Retailer quick links
- Amazon - Save up to 100% on iPhone
- Verizon - iPhones from $0 per month
- AT&T - Phones from $1.99 per month
A big surprise this year in the free iPhone sweepstakes is Amazon. Amazon doesn’t normally stock the newest iPhone in the stable, so to have them on the shelves and available for free is definitely unprecedented. You can get the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max for free from Amazon when you take out a Boost Infinite wireless plan. You’ll get unlimited talk, text, and data, and plan prices start from $60 a month for the base iPhone 15. You’ll also get your $60 activation fee credited back onto your first bill, saving you that cost, too! As with all these deals, you need to take out a wireless plan to get the savings, and you’ll be tied into a contract for the next three years.
iPhone 15 | From $0 at checkout $60/month
Amazon now stocks the iPhone 15 lineup and you can get one for literally zero dollars if you buy a Boost Infinite plan. The $60 activation fee will be credited against your first bill, and then you get unlimited talk, text, and data for $60 a month, as well as annual upgrades. You can also buy outright for $788, 5% off the usual RRP.
iPhone 15 Pro | From $0 at checkout and $68/month
The iPhone 15 Pro is also available for free on Amazon if you take out a Boost Infinite plan, all you need to pay is a $60 activation fee (which you'll get credited against your first bill, so it's really free), and then $68.33 per month for unlimited talk, text, and data, plus annual upgrades to the latest iPhone.
It would be quicker to tell you which iPhones you can’t get for free from Verizon, such is the generosity of their trade-in deals and their overall wireless plan packages. If you trade in the right device, you can get an iPhone 15, or iPhone 15 Pro, or Pro Max for free. They’ll even throw in a saving on an Apple Watch and iPad, too!
They also have both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro available for free! All of these deals require you to take out a data plan because the promotion is applied as a credit against your plan over 36 months.
Save big on an iPhone 15 with this deal, if you’ve got an older device to trade in. That $840 will cover the whole price of the base device, so recycling your old phone could end up saving you loads of money. Not only is Verizon the king of trade-ins, but they're also offering users a free $279 off an iPad and savings on Apple Watch when bundled together.
iPhone 15 Pro | Save up to $999 with trade-in at Verizon
Just as with the non-pro version, you can save the big bucks if you grab an iPhone with trade-in at Verizon. The iPhone 15 Pro is the newest iPhone on the block, so any saving is welcome, especially if it drops the price this much. Like the regular 15, this also comes with a free Apple TV 4K and six months of free Apple One.
Again, you’ll need a device to trade in to take advantage of these, but AT&T is offering free iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models when you activate and keep an eligible plan (min. 75/month). In return, you’ll get up to $1,000 in bill credits depending on which smartphone you trade-in.
Trade in your old phone at AT&T, and end up paying nothing every month for the iPhone 15. This is similar to the deal at Verizon, although you’ll go through AT&T instead. Let’s hope your iPhone 12 is in good condition!
T-Mobile has some of the best monthly plans on offer that include a free iPhone, or at least an iPhone you don’t have to make a down payment on. The selection includes the iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, iPhone 14, and the iPhone 13 and 14 ranges. The beefier the mobile wireless plan you take out, the more money you're going to save.
